Community Charter School of Cambridge (CCSC) is a charter public school. Located in the Kendall Square area near MIT, the school serves 360 students in grades 6-12.

Open since 2005, CCSC provides a rigorous academic program that places all students on the pathway to college success. The CCSC academic program is demanding, and students are held to very high standards for both academics and behavior. The school’s small size and low student-faculty ratio ensure that every student is well known to and closely supported by a dedicated and skilled corps of teachers and administrators.
